ReJoyce! I'm Back
Here’s the thing, I’ve been terribly neglectful as far as social media is concerned and I apologize. It has been a strange month as I met deadlines, forged new alliances, researched new ideas, made new deals, tended schoolyard boo boos and well, I’ve been busy. But I have some room to breathe now so let me bring you all up to date on my mad cap adventures.
I have three other projects in various stages of development and I am excited about all three. But it takes time to juggle all this. I’m writing another middle grade novel called CAKE which is about two magical sisters who take in foster children. I love writing abut magic and wonder and possibilities. Which is why I might have been drawn to Steampunk. I’m writing a proposal for a Steampunk YA novel now. I hope it’s good. I think it is. Kind of a Willy Wonka meets Victorian England but in Massachusetts in 1839. Uhm, weird, I know but be patient. And of course the sequel to Harriet. I love Harriet and cannot wait to develop her even more in book two.
And then there is family. No need to say more except I am so excited to announce that my daughter and her beautiful family will be moving back to the east coast next month. They have been transferred to Maine. I’m so excited. I haven’t even met my third grandson, Soren yet.
My son has discovered the joys and problems of keeping saltwater aquarium. It’s a great hobby and he loves it. The boy knows so much about fish and coral and things like feather duster worms and anemones. He rocks. But saltwater takes are delicate and need a lot of care—hence several visits to Captain Nemo’s Aquarium. I love the name and it kind of fits with the whole Steampunk thing right now.
Oh, and of course not to mention various and sundry visits to the ER, the doc, church things, and traveling. Yep. It’s been a busy month. But still, I love being a writer and am so blessed in many ways.
And I’d like to announce a little giveaway. I will give away a copy of either Blame It On the Mistletoe or Carrying Mason to two lucky commenters. All you have to do is leave a comment and I will randomly pick two or three winners. Cool. Christmas is coming. These books make great gifts.
